The book is about his spiritual path and about fundamentalist religions and brainwashing techniques. It also discusses the status of women in orthodox/fundamentalist Islamic communities. It, however, is not at all a criticism of Islam as he states he learned a great deal from that religion.
Frank Romano was a young Californian living in Paris, studying philosophy during the 70’s and searching for the ideals of a universal religion that believed in peace, tolerance and freedom. He had no idea that his next trip would find him held captive by militant Muslims. Romano’s intriguing book tells the story of how, as a young man, he was impressed by a group of young Moroccans and their Islamic faith, and believing that the study of Islam would help in his quest to gain spiritual discipline, he entered a mosque in Casablanca to study the Qur’an and Arabic. He soon realized he was living a nightmare of confinement and brain washing at the hands of militant Muslim fanatics. Falsely accused of being a Zionist spy after he questioned the treatment of women, and later acquitted by an internal tribunal, he was forced to remain a prisoner within the walls of the mosque.
What a frightening look into what could happen to any of us!!
